Hospitality for the Sojourner Among Us.
We have several groups coming through Roanoke and spending the night at Thrasher. We would like to show them true hospitality by providing snacks and breakfast. The first group is an ASP group coming from New Jersey on Saturday, July 6. We need snacks for them when they arrive Saturday evening – cookies, chips, fruit, etc. and breakfast for Sunday morning. This could be Soul Café and we just pick up the tab for them. On Wednesday, July 10 a group will be here from Braddock St. UMC on their way to a week of missions in NC. We will need snacks on Wednesday evening and breakfast on Thursday morning at 6:45.
